Just as people can steal from us in the physical realm, Satan and his demons can steal from us in the spiritual realm. For many of us, he has stolen our joy. For others, he has stolen their peace. And yet for others, he has stolen their dreams, relationships and dignity.
Perhaps some of these are ringing a bell with you. Maybe it’s that Satan has stolen your purpose. You’re here on earth; you just don’t know why you are here. You have no sense of a divine calling on your life, so you simply meander from day to day. But take heart; as a kingdom steward, God has arranged it so that you can reclaim that which was stolen from you. Luke 10:19 reads, “Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you.” In other words, you can have your joy and peace back. You can have restored relationships. You can have even the stuff you once had all for the purpose of building the kingdom with success.
While the struggle with the thief is ongoing, as a steward of God, you always have the power and authority to send him away and to reclaim that which God apportioned to you.
